• Waffle Day Recipe

March 25, 2021

Today is International Waffle Day and my two boys convinced me to 'invest in' a waffle maker! So we are now the proud new owners of a lovely little round Netta waffle maker. 

Next step, finding the perfect recipe! 

Well, I've discovered that too much can lead to slightly too thick waffles and too little can lead to gaps in the outside so it took a little trial and error together the right label size - but boy was it worth it!  The end result? Perfect sized, perfectly toasted delicious waffles that got the thumbs up from all. 

If you would like to try your own, here is a good base recipe, although you may wish to add slightly more milk if you find the mixture too runny!

Dry Ingredients

  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 355ml warm milk
  • 75g butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

Preheat waffle maker to desired temperature.

Step 1.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl combining the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar together.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until smooth. Carefully pour in the milk,  melted butter and vanilla essence. Blend until all combined and then pour into the flour mixture.

Step 3

Beat the combined mix until blended into a smooth batter. If the mix is too thick, add slightly more milk.  Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle maker.

Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Serve while warm with your favourite toppings from fresh berries and yoghurt to maple syrup and banana .. or anything you like!

This year has been challenging for many parents, balancing working from home with home schooling, exam cancellations and children self-isolating.  In addition, our holiday travel plans may have been affected by the covid restrictions and we are looking to holiday in the UK this year.

Mental Health is important for everyone.  Whether you call it 'mental health' or  ‘emotional health’ and well-being .. it is just as important as our physical health.  In short, it refers to the thoughts we think and feelings we are experiencing and becoming aware of these so that we can identify when they are not serving or.
